First Pizza Cook


Recommended Posts

Well I did my inaugural cook on my classic 3 last night with the doejoe. Although I had the Akorn for 4yrs I had never done pizza so decided to try it out. And definitely learning but it didn’t turn out too bad. I followed John’s two hour pizza dough recipe and I really enjoyed the crispy crust it gave me. Biggest issue for me was stretching the dough evenly but just need some more practice I suppose. 1st one was cheese for my son that I left too much dough around the edges but tasted good and I did get better with the pepperoni. Also tried some grocery store dough that I made into a flat bread if you will but I didn’t enjoy that dough as well. I wish I could have gotten the outer top crust a little browner. I brushed it with olive oil but didn’t brown up as much as I had hoped but didn’t want to overcook the bottom. Cooked at 550-600 for homemade dough and let grill drop to around 400 to try store bought dough. All in all I would say not too bad for first attempt.

great looking pizzas to me.  The 1st pizza I did, it was cooked it in about 3 minutes.  the top was perfect.  and I quickly learned I needed a pizza stone over the heat deflector.   the bottom was overly burnt.   given your 1st cook, you rocked it.

Looks great for a first cook.  Like anything else, the key to shaping it is practice, practice and patience!  

Thanks and I definitely need the practice cause on the last one I tore it and tried to let it rest and redo but tore it again. So I had to give up on that one which was disappointing but I’ll be giving it another shot soon.
